Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

#1 Post by Cplcurley » Sun Dec 23, 2018 3:03 pm

Hi folks picked up an array I'd 303 ammo today.

Fabrica Nacional de Muniçoes or fnm is a new brand to me, is it safe in a lee Enfield no1 mk3?

Are they corrosive???

Non-corrosive and should be boxer primed. I've fired a bit of that brand in 7.5x55 Swiss with no problems.

All good stuff, non corrosive & reloadable.
Arguably better brass than RemChester.

Some of the FNM was made by Prvi Partizan on contract. “Made in Serbia or Yugoslavia” or “made for FNM” on the FNM boxes = Prvi mfg for FNM.
